Motorcyclist Injured in Interstate 5 Rear-End Crash [Ferndale, WA]

Injury in Multi-Vehicle Crash on Interstate 5 in Ferndale

Ferndale, WA (October 31, 2021)– Yesterday, a motorcyclist suffered serious injuries in an Interstate 5 rear-end crash.

The crash happened at about 3:30 p.m. at the Nooksack River bridge.

Officer said a vehicle stopped and a Toyota Corolla also stopped in response to the first vehicle. However, a motorcyclist rear-ended the Toyota. 

The motorcycle rider was thrown in the crash and landed in front of the Toyota.

Meanwhile, behind the first crash, a Dodge Dakota pickup stopped and a Chevrolet van collided into the rear of the Dodge.

The officers said the motorcycle and Chevrolet drivers were both traveling too fast.

Right away, the rescuers took the motorcycle driver to PeaceHealth St Joseph Medical Center with serious injuries including back and wrist injuries.

Make it a routine to always perform simple safety checks before you leave.

Start by inspecting your vehicle’s headlights and turn signals, be sure that both front and rear headlamps are working properly and visible enough a couple of yards away. 

Also, take a reading of your tire pressure and make sure you maintain the recommended maximum. While at it, take a peek under your vehicle and ensure there are no loose objects or leaks.

Most importantly, stay focused while on the road. Remove all distractions that could cause accidents such as mobile phone use, unstrapped toddlers, etc.
